Regional Patronage in Russia : Bryansk, Smolensk and Kursk

Since 1991, the regional elites have shown a great capacity of adaptation
to the institutional transformations and economic hazards. Until
2004, while not challenging the Putin régime, the governors have transformed
their regions into spaces where the Kremlin had to compromise
with other power structures. However, while president Putin has
extensively used the theme of the fight against corruption in the regions
in order to legitimate his policy, he has paradoxically attempted to wipe
out the electoral competition and the rare checks that counterbalanced
the regional executives. The authoritarian turn of September 2004
intended to suppress the last structures that represented an open competition
for the Kremlin. This technocratic leap forward is unlikely to dissuade the regional elites from developing client relationships reserved
to a privileged few.
